Expedia.com Launches New Online Resource for Unmanaged Business Travelers

New Business Travel page includes MileageManager tool for managing multiple travel rewards programs in one place

Expedia.com (R), the world's leading online travel company, today announced the launch of its new Business Travel resource (http://www.expedia.com/business) for unmanaged business travelers -- those who book their business travel on their own as opposed to through a corporate travel department or full-service corporate travel management company. Expedia.com Business Travel page meets their needs, offering tools and information not available from any other online travel agency.

"Travelers book with Expedia.com because we deliver them choice and control, with the best selection of travel options, booking tools and information that help them easily book the right trip at a great value," said Paul Brown, President, Expedia North America.

"We understand the unique needs of unmanaged business travelers and have developed a travel booking resource that speaks directly to their needs and helps them make confident travel decisions."

MileageManager tool streamlines travel points tracking

Gone are the days of the business travel "road warrior" having to manage multiple travel points programs in several different places.

Expedia.com has launched the MileageManager tool, making it the first online travel agency to enable business travelers to manage and track multiple travel rewards program totals in one place.
Plus, the Expedia.com ThankYou rewards program takes travel rewards to a new level, delivering the freedom to earn rewards points across multiple travel providers, and providing total choice and flexibility in redeeming rewards. And there is no need to give up current frequent flier programs -- in most cases, travelers can still earn their frequent flier program points when booking on Expedia.com by simply entering their membership number at the time of booking or check-in.

Enrolling in MileageManager is easy. Expedia(R) customers can trial the service free for 30 days. A one-year subscription is just $4.95, a savings of $10 that is exclusive to Expedia customers.
